Stay in Shape while Travelling this Summer
Don’t let any holidays stop you from being healthy or ruin your fitness routine. Use Booking.com to choose to stay at a place where you can relax and also maintain good fitness and health habits
Many people tend to put on some weight while they’re travelling or on holiday. But it doesn’t need to be this way as there are plenty of travel options for people who want to travel and stay fit. But people do need to make good decisions about accommodation if they want to keep in shape.
By using Booking.com to select accommodations, travelers can ensure they stay at a place with a lot of great options for health and fitness.
The connection between travel and weight gain is backed up by more than just anecdotal evidence.
A study by the Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior at Brown Medical School in the U.S. found that people who have successfully lost weight as well as people with normal weight tend to gain weight during holiday travel. The study indicates that this is because travelling can disrupt regular exercise routines and diet discipline. Meanwhile, exploring great restaurants and food markets is also a fun part of travel.
By choosing to stay at accommodations that provide good sport facilities, fitness classes or healthy foods, travelers can program fitness right into their holidays. Using Booking.com, the global leader in connecting travelers with the widest choice of incredible places to stay, travelers can book places to stay in Thailand, and abroad, where maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle is easy – and fun.
For those travelers who want to go a step further, and find the very best accommodation to match their sporting passions, Booking.com offers a special search feature that allows people to book accommodation based on things they are passionate about. Booking.com’s Passion Search is new way of searching and the most comprehensive of its kind in the travel industry – perfectly matching people’s unique passions and interests with the best destination and accommodation to suit their needs. For travelers that prioritize fitness, Passion Search includes accommodations with great hiking, wild swimming, golf, mountaineering – and many, many more fitness activities. Passion Search is available here: http://www.booking.com/destinationfinder.html.
It should also be noted that travelers looking for accommodations with great fitness and health facilities can look to the reviews of like-minded travelers for insights into accommodations. Booking.com’s 80 million guest reviews and 26 million destination endorsements are a great resource for travelers. Passion Search includes more than 1,000 destinations featured with rich content that perfectly mix curated expertise with real reviews and insights.
